Q.I have just planted a lavender plant and it looks wilted

Zone London | Anonymous added on June 6, 2020 | Answered

I bought the plant last week and planted the lavender plant from the nursery pot into the planter. I watered the plant the day I bought it (Thursday) and then again after replanting (on Monday).

The plant looks droopy as you can see in the photo. What can I do to revive the plant?

Does that pot have any drainage holes? If not, I would put the plant into a container with good drainage, then put it in this planter. When you water, you can take the inside container out, water, let it drain, then return to the planter.

There also is probably some transplant shock going on. As soon as it settles in to its new surroundings it should perk up. Be sure to deadhead the flowers to keep them coming.
